For the past few years we've only taken hand luggage on our holidays. There's a few reasons for this decision, keeps the cost down as don't have to pay extra for hold luggage & no queuing to check luggage in. We go straight through to departures & on landing, straight out of arrivals lounge & away 👍
First I bought a decent lightweight case. I choose an Eastpak make as I know they are made of strong stuff 👍. Here's the model I bought :- https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00PH4MRT6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I've also recently purchased, but not used yet, a 2nd bag (instead of handbag) that your also allowed on some airlines. I expect it to be a very welcome addition as can fit loads in. Here it is :- https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01B81U9KU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I don't always take a beach towel if our apartment provides one but if needs be then I have a microfiber towel as they are lightweight & fold up small.
Now to the packing!
I roll my clothes. I take approximately 12 tops, 3 shorts, a pair of jeans & 2 dresses. PJ's, 2 Rocket dog flip-flops. Tankini. Underwear I keep to a minimum as washout each evening, so 3 pants & one bra (I travel in a set). I travel in my sandals as they are heavier & bulkier.
Bits n bobs are, straighteners, gas tongs, adaptors, eyemask, tablet/earphones, meds, toiletries, brush/comb.
I place all liquids into a freezer zip lock bag, same for adaptors & earphones & any batteries as this makes it easier at security if everything is in the one bag. These will all now go in my new carry-on bag mentioned above along with tablet for ease at security.
Liquids. I have a couple of the plastic 100ml bottles which I use for my favourite dry sun oil. I can't buy it abroad so I do waste space by having to take it, but otherwise I would buy suncream in resort. I decant it into the bottles & pack the empty spray bottle & then put it back when I get there 😂. Bit of a waff but needs must. Plus I don't worry too much on way out as know it's not coming back 😉.
I don't wear much make up so just decant some foundation into a small round 50p pot, same with moisturiser. Ample for 2 weeks.
I think that's it. I'll add more if I think of something I've missed. I'll also take a pic of my packed bag when it's ready for our June holiday.
All tips welcome & if anyone would like to help with hold luggage tips please feel free to add 👍
Happy Holidays Everyone 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞
Hotbrush is electrical so therefore again needs to be put seperately through the scanner. I put all electrical items, including batteries, headphones, adaptors, chargers in a separate bag, either near the top of my case or just in a carrier bag (along with liquids bag) until through security. Once through you can put everything in your case.
As long as your rollers aren't heated you can pack them in your and luggage. If they are then include them in electrical bag.
Hope this helps 👍
